Rosalind Brodsky’s Case for Embracing Judaism




"This is my case for embracing Judaism. I made this device in 2010 after a day in synagogue on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. It’s basically a scaled up beard. I bought the original beard in a joke shop in Bournemouth and took photos of myself and my family, with my father and mother taking turns to wear it. I put the photos in the case as a reminder of the event and connected the images to the control box inside.
The large beard is also wired up to the control box...the wires are kind of like two umbilical cords, one from my mother and the other from my father. My mother wasn’t born Jewish but she converted when she married my father. I know it sounds a bit crazy but I sometimes wear the beard like an apron or bib when I’m cooking certain Jewish recipes. It makes me feel more connected to my roots and the control box is configured to send short Talmudic commentaries to my brain."
